Apps are easier to open on your wearable, using the Android Wear Mini Launcher
If you want to load up one of the installed apps on your Android Wear powered smartwatch, you can either try to launch it by saying the name of the app to your watch, or by scrolling to the bottom of the options list. Not that either method is overly taxing, but you might like an easier way to launch an app from your timepiece.

Well, the good news is that a simple gesture from the left edge can call up any app on your smartwatch, from any page. But you will need to first install the Wear Mini Launcher from the Google Play Store, to make it happen. With this app, you can swipe in from the left edge of the timepiece, and scroll through the list of apps on the watch.

In a loud area, voice control isn't perfect, and who wants to scroll through pages until they reach their desired app? This would seem like a perfect solution for those who plan on using numerous installed apps on their watch. And at the low, low price of "free," you are going to be hard-pressed to find a better deal.
